Ahhhh, the Beauty of Fall

I think I have decided that fall is my favorite time of the year. The gorgeous leaves, the sweet sunshine accompanied by the cool breeze, driving down the road and seeing deer in the fields - absolutely beautiful!!! I hope you are enjoying this time of the year as much as I have been.
During my last workshop, we played with the new Olivia papers which really highlight the season and all its glory. I thought I would share with you what we created. This first layout shows my beautiful Princess and big Bruiser as they sit in a small stream and enjoy the beautiful fall day.

This second layout was created using Close to My Heart's new Magic Layout book. if you notice in the second picture, there is a pull out strip to showcase more pictures. My brother-in-law was recently married and so I thought these papers would be beautiful to highlight the occasion and of course I wanted to show off more people then just them, hence the pull out strip.

In case you missed my baby, here is a picture of my Whiz Kid all dressed up for the wedding.

Isn't he handsome!!! Yes, I am a proud mama!
Take some pictures of some of your favorite things during this beautiful season, or extra pictures as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, grab you a pack of Olivia paper and stickease and have at it. These papers can only enhance your pictures!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't eat too much! :)

No Spooks here

Keeping up with our yearly Halloween tradition, our family went to visit our ol' friend Chuck. You know - the big cheese - the big Mr. Chuck E. Cheese. Each year we give our kids the option to go to our church where we have a fabulous concert and trunk or treat event or they can go visit the Chuck at his house. I don't know if it's because they can't get me near the place any other day of the year or if they really love Chuck but they always choose to go see their big mouse friend. It's the perfect time to go too because NO ONE else is there and we have the place to ourselves. It's fabulous!

Hope you had a fun Halloween too!
